What can an Ambassador offer?
Hertie School alumni can be found all over the world. The Hertie School Ambassadors programme helps prospective students connect with alumni close to home. As an Ambsassador there are various ways to get involved:
- Networking with prospective students: Many prospective students would like to connect on LinkedIn and other professional networks or ask questions via email. You should be willing to have your profile published on the Hertie School website and allow the school to pass on your email address to prospective students who might have questions on life in Berlin, your experience at the Hertie School and so forth. You can either answer all questions by email, have a skype call or meet in person – that is entirely up to you. Please note that you can always refer the people to our Recruitment Team if you are uncertain about very specific questions regarding the study programme.
- Coffee Chats: Meet prospective students in a casual setting; reserve a table at a cafe or restaurant for a couple of hours and we’ll take care of organising and doing marketing for the event.
- Support the Hertie School team at fairs and recruitment events: If you would like to help out at one of the grad and career fairs we attend world-wide, let us know your current city of residence and we’ll approach you if we’ll be at an event nearby.
- Represent the Hertie School at the Open Day: Meet prospective students and answer their questions or join a panel discussion on your time at the Hertie School.
Who can become an Ambassador?
Any alumna/us can become an ambassador, just drop us a line: firstname.lastname@example.org. You would have to be willing to provide us with your contact details so that we can reach out to you.
Times for volunteering are flexible. They depend on queries of prospective students and dates of recruitment fairs etc.
What support can I expect?
If you agree to network with prospective students, the Hertie School will update and manage your online profile. To avoid spamming, we will forward requests to you on an individual basis.
